Pupil Premium Funding
What is Pupil Premium?
Pupil Premium is funding given to schools to help to support disadvantaged children, and to help to close the gap in attainment between these children and their peers. It is allocated to schools for every child who has been registered for free school meals at any point in the last six years, and for children looked after or adopted, in a special guardianship, residence order and children of Service Personnel.
It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium is spent since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual children within their responsibility.
At Marlcliffe Primary, we are committed to closing the attainment gap between our disadvantaged children and their peers, and we hope to do this by ensuring that all our children get access to an engaging and inspiring curriculum, the best teaching and learning, alongside targeted support based on best practice as highlighted in the EEF's Teaching and Learning Toolkit.
